[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nice gifts, but no colorful wrappings. Things were simpler in days of old, but I'd miss the colors of the season. This is another shot taken inside the historic Hampton Mansion. The holiday tour of this magnificent structure was wonderful. The rug you see is over 150 years old, I think they got their money's worth.

PP: Crop, curves, USM.

Thanks for viewing and have a nice weekend.

Hi Werner ,

wonderful sharpness and details of the texture in your frame,
good POV covering the gift to 150 year old carpet with good focus,
superb vivid colors and a good presentation with the theme,
good use of avoidable shot and a nice indoor presentation.

Merry Christmas

Hi Werner - Nice interior composition. Good DOF and colors.
Have a good day,

Hello Werner,

Excellent photo and composition with this beautiful old interior.
Great POV and sharpness.

Best regards and have a nice weekend,

Wow, now that is a NICE shot, Werner. The detail is just awesome. Fabulous lighting, lovely color, well composed and cropped and I especially like all the patterns and textures. REALLY well done! Many thanks and wishing you and yours a lovely holiday season,

Excellent sharpness and details Great natural colours I think I might have been temoted to clone out the black line on the fireplace and crop the left side a little I have prepared a ws to show what I mean (a little nit picking so i hope you dont mind) Nice work
warm regards


I do not know how I missed this. I'm so sorry!

Wrapping paper may have been like the first Ford color option...any color you want as long as it's black.

This is a very nice photo of a time past. I love that afghan, at least that's what I call it. I bet they spend a lot of money preserving all of this. I'm actually surprised they let you take a camera on the tour. ...did you sneak it?
